One of the first things I do every morning is check my Facebook page to make sure the world is still in order, and my email for overnight orders and correspondence. I typically accomplish this task with a groggy two-and-a-half year old on one leg, and a wiggly five year old on the other. As we browse my Facebook news feed, they make me stop for things that would not normally catch my attention – like pictures of tiny, cute kittens (Thanks, Allissa).
It is from said tiny, cute kittens that I learned about Kelli Wise’s August challenge of 31 blog posts in 31 days. Many others have since accepted this epic August challenge. If you want to follow along and read some great blogs from knowledgeable people in massage field, here are a few colleagues that are a few days into the challenge.
I will not be participating in this challenge. I seriously thought about it, but I am going to slow my pace down this month. Last month I completed a Copyblogger/Sonia Simone challenge. It was to release a minimal viable product in one week. It took me a month. Then, like I mentioned a few days ago, this product led me to the decision that it might be “fun” to take the MBLEx twelve years after I went to massage school. I completed that challenge on Wednesday.
I am looking forward to a little break, and to reading all of the other colleague posts!
My August challenge awaits me at the Iowa State Fair next week: A fried stick of butter on a stick. Challenge accepted.
Again, leave your link below if you are taking part in the challenge. If this challenge is not for you, sit down and come up with a less aggressive schedule for your business blog, Allissa has a suggestions for publications calendar posted today.
